While AI isn’t everywhere yet, adoption is growing at a rapid pace, according to new research released today at IBM’s annual Think conference.
The 2022 Global AI Adoption Index analyzed responses from over 7500 IT leaders around the world. Key highlights of the report include that 35% of organizations are using AI today and an additional 42% are “exploring AI.” AI use is helping to improve sustainability efforts as well as narrow important skills gaps, according to the report.
“One finding that stood out to me is that more than half of organizations polled say they’ve accelerated their AI rollout over the last two years,” Seth Dobrin, chief AI officer at IBM, told VentureBeat. “While AI adoption has been gradual for several years, I believe we’re at a tipping point and it’s poised to become a lot less gradual than it has been in the past.”
